No you would not be able to get it to burn, you would probably kill it like a lot of others have done.

It is probably fixed and you won't be able to. You be better off just buying a different more powerful laser.
You could always post pictures of the driver, someone might help you out.

You NEED glasses for 100mw and you pretty much want them for anything greater than a 5mw.

Now,

100mw won't work well for burning especially with a red laser pointer. A 100mw 405nm (violet) laser world heat black materials up slowly but honestly your best bet is a DIY 445nm. Inexpensive, and very impressive in my opinion. =)
Be sure to do some research on what all you need for a build first and if you don't think you have a good chance at success look in the "Buy, sell, trade" section because there are always nice lasers for sale by reputable members.

Yes you should get glasses for anything over 5 mmw. I would go higher.
Try this one LZPL - 650nm 200mW Focusable Red Laser Pointer Waterproof

Wellll.... I have never had any luck burning with red. The smaller the wavelength the higher the energy, and therefore the more it will burn.

For burning you should first get some glasses, then get a high powered violet or blue. Green will be brighter but burning will be more expensive as the diode will have to be a higher power.
